The restaurant is welcoming and has a nice atmosphere, me and my family went there for lunch and we started with a traditional polish soup followed by a tasty quiche served with a nice fresh sallad, all local ingredients and our daughter opted for a...burger with french flair. The quality and selection of food and drinks was good and service was professional and friendly. The menu offer a good range to select from both for adult's and kid's, the pricing is mid-range. We be back for more!!More

Thank you for visiting and such a nice opinion about Cafe Helenka. We are glad that you have such nice memories. We invite you again to Cafe Helenka. Maybe we can get 5 * in your opinion. See you soon!
We actually ended up eating there 3 times during our stay in Szczawnica. Overall, it's a nice place offering good food for an honest price.
Now don't get me wrong - the food was not excellent but it was good. The prices were fair and...so were the portions.
On our first visit, however, it was quite difficult to catch the waitress' eye and we had to wait quite a while to be served.More
We were a group of 12 people, mainly family and we thought that this would be perfect place to have Sunday lunch in. Unfortunately we were unable to eat in the restaurant as waitress told us it is impossible to move tables in order to...accommodate us! She was surprised that we couldn’t sit at separate tables!!! And said that tables were heavy to lift I assured her that we would move them ourselves and put them back in their right place after meal. Unfortunately we were not able to do that either, reason being “we do not move tables”
I am really shocked as we were in Poland for a week and managed to eat in various locations, cities and restaurant and we were never refused to move tables!!! I need to add that idea of going to restaurant in company of 12 and being advised to eat at separate tables is appalling!
I am very disappointed as restaurant itself looks beautiful and is well located. Unfortunately we needed to go elsewhere.More
its difficult not to go there as this restaurant is located in the very center of the nice zdrojowy square where you should go anyway. So its quite nice to sit outside there.... but the food is very average. bad polish dishes (pierogi bad soup)...maybe..better to go there for a coffee as you can eat poor food evrywhere.
this place claims to have french? or italian? cousine - i tried the polish one and they really dont care what they serve so i doubt that its french or italian cousine would be betterMore
Nice cafe in a historical building with beautifull interior. The coffee and the cakes are very good. Only drawback is that once when we arrived 20 minutes before closing we had to leave - they didn't serve any hot drinks - not coffee or tea....StrangeMore
We had a delicious meal here on our first night, i had the veggie dumplings and my partner had the meat dumplings. He had the hot beer and i had the hot spiced wine and both were very nice.
We had lunch there on our...last day to and i had the pea and mint soup which was delicious and my partner said his steak burger was one of the best he's tasted.
The staff are very friendly, we had a lovely waitress who had a big smile for us everytime she came to our table and the service was excellent.
Prices were resonable. Highly recommend a visit.More
